Enhancing the appearance of your smile has never been easier and more convenient than right now at Blacks Fork Dental. Have you ever wanted to have a straighter smile but don’t want to have braces for years and years? Well, we have the solution for you! ClearCorrect aligners are a new, transparent way for you to obtain your perfectly straight smile.
What are ClearCorrect Aligners?
ClearCorrect is an orthodontic treatment that doesn’t use metal appliances such as brackets and archwires like traditional braces. Orthodontics is the dental specialty of diagnosing and treating things such as:
- Crooked teeth
- Overcrowded teeth
- Open bites
- Gaps between teeth
These smile characteristics are things that some patients would like to change or need to be changed to improve the overall health of their smile. Before new advancements, braces were the only form of orthodontic care offered to teenagers and adults.
ClearCorrect is a type of orthodontic treatment that uses clear, customized aligners to move your teeth into place. Each ClearCorrect treatment is created and personalized to each patient’s wants, needs, and the complexity of their smile.
How Does ClearCorrect Work?
With any orthodontic treatment, you will begin with a comprehensive oral evaluation to determine if you are a candidate for clear aligners. In this examination, we will take photos, impressions, and X-rays of your teeth and surrounding tissues. These different images will allow us to see what exactly needs to be treated and to properly design your sets of customized clear aligners.
The entire treatment consists of a series of multiple clear aligners. The complexity of your smile design will determine the number of aligner sets and therefore how long the treatment will take. Dr. Irene will be sure to discuss this process with you in detail and is happy to answer any of your questions. Once you are ready to start your treatment, we will give you your first set of aligners. You will wear each set for at least two weeks. During these weeks, they gently move your teeth into a better position. Each of the following new sets will move your teeth closer and closer to the final desired position, setting the stage for your beautiful smile.
Why are Clear Aligners Better than Traditional Braces?
There are many benefits to choosing ClearCorrect aligners as your orthodontic treatment:
- Removable: Aligners are created to allow you to remove them to eat and care for your teeth. Because of this, fewer clear aligners break, and you won’t need to exclude hard and sticky foods from your diet. However, aligners must be worn for at least 22 hours out of the day for maximum effect.
- Maintains Oral Health: It is common for patients with traditional braces to decrease their oral health because cleaning the teeth gets harder. With removable aligners, patients can brush and floss their teeth like normal. You will be less likely to develop cavities, since you are able to clean your teeth better without having to work around brackets and wires. No hard-to-reach areas or appliances are getting in the way.
- Clear: ClearCorrect aligners are clear and invisible to any person passing by. The discreteness has brought patients more comfort and confidence when obtaining treatment because there is little to no attention to their mouth. Patients can remain confident and have a professional appearance with ClearCorrect aligners.
- Fast Treatment: A complete treatment with ClearCorrect aligners in Mountain View, Wyoming, can last anywhere from 6-24 months. ClearCorrect can have shorter treatments compared to other orthodontic treatments. Many adults choose ClearCorrect for their faster treatment times.
